As soon as the singer revealed her helplessness on the social media site, fans across the globe came together in support of her. Singapore Airlines replied to her tweet with an apology.

Yesterday, Twitter was busy and buzzing all day when Shreya Ghoshal took it to the social media platform to bash Singapore Airlines when they denied her to carry her music instruments along. Lambasting the airline she wrote on her Twitter handle "I guess @SingaporeAir does not want musicians or anybody who has a precious instrument to fly with on this airline. Well. Thank you. Lesson learned."

The Airlines in its catalog strictly warns against carrying any oversized musical instruments like cello and double bass. Also, if you'd prefer against checking in your musical instrument, the airlines advised bringing one on board by purchasing an extra seat to accommodate the instrument. They also clearly mentions that the musical instrument shouldn't exceed the height limit of 127 cm / 50 inches (height) and 45.72 cm / 18 inches width. Also, the instrument should not exceed 40 kg of weight.

May we seek more details of your concerns and what was last advised by our colleagues? Thank you." The measures to be taken to shed some more clarity into the incident would be worth seeing.
